looking for a steering wheel....

Hello, all...
Recently, due to a HUGE crack in my truck's steering wheel, I had to go and buy an aftermarket one for my pickup, and, while it looks nice, I'd rather much have and original steering wheel for it. Unfortunately, all the ones ive seen in parts catalogs cost anywhere from 200 to 400 dollars, and I would much rather save that much money for getting the bed of my truck fixed. All the salvage yards in my area only deal with newer models, so I'm out of luck there. If anyone know where I can get a steering wheel for a 1975 F100, please let me know


thanks,
Mike

Hey Mike I'm not on here much and I just spotted this thread. The plastic on those old steering wheels tends to crack with age. The wheel has a steel core under the plastic so it's not a safety issue. I've repaired them with JB Weld with good sucess. It takes patience but it beats the snot out of $200 - $400.

This 3 spoke I swapped into my 72 had a couple cracks at the base. JB Welded it, gave it a paint job and it looks like new.
